Discover Chiang Rai - Chiang Mai


Overview

If you’re the kind of person who constantly craves for adventure but dislikes following a strict schedule, Trip Guru would like to suggest that you visit the beautiful Chiang Rai. Despite being a small city, it has a multitude of wonders to explore to make your stay in Thailand a memorable and fulfilling one. The relaxing atmosphere, modestly-priced accommodations, and delicious food will have you coming back for more after each and every visit.

If you’d like to better understand yourself and to listen to the inner workings of your spirit, you can explore Chiang Mai’s numerous temples. Venture to the Wat Phra Singh and seek out a famous Buddha image known as a Lion Buddha, safe inside a small church, hidden in the back of the temple grounds. You can also enjoy taking photos of beautiful murals showcasing Jataka tales and other charming stories.  Chiang Mai also offers a different insight to the elephant, and they have an elephant park available so that tourists and travelers alike can gain a different, more intimate perspective with these massive, gentle creatures.

If you’d prefer to take home a piece of Thailand that will always be with you, you could learn how to cook Thai dishes, or try out some yoga. Chiang Mai is home to various yoga studios that cater to both beginners and advanced students alike, at Yoga Tree where they have community yoga every Monday for a modest fee or learn how to meditate to rid yourself of stress and anxiety from your body. And if you’re just looking to have some fun, Chiang Mai is perfect for unleashing some adrenaline. There’s paintball, bungee jumping, mountain biking, various hikes and treks and rafting.

The Wat Phra Singh is located at Ratchadamnoen Road, which runs from Tapae gate, which is just inside the Suan Dok gate. It is open from 5:00am to 8:30pm. To get to the Yoga Tree, head south down Arak Road, and pass the turn to Ratchamanka Road where The Yoga Tree is to your left, with a large green sign by the phone box, same lane as ‘M Apartment.’ Elephant Nature Park is located north of the Chiang Mai office. Go to Highway 107 to Mae Taeng and look for signs to the Maetaman Elephant Camp. It is open from 7:00am to 5:00pm.
